To the Right is a timetable showing an example of what the Rotations look like. We usually have a fair idea of what each Trainee will be doing for the entire 3 year course, but these rotations are subject to change so we usually only supply one years rotation to the students at a time.
The first two years, ST1 and ST2, are usually Hospital rotations, Currently we also provide a total of 20 months of GP Primary care placements, 12 month in ST3 as well as a 4 month GP placement generally in ST2, and a 4 month ITP placement that is integrated GP with either Paediatrics, Psychiatry or Acute Medicine.
The final year, ST3, is entirely based at the Practice of the trainees Educational Supervisor.
